Odds to Win the 2007 World Series

Since we have been tracking the odds for most of the off-season there is no reason to quit now. With opening day in sight, Bodog has updated the odds for the upcoming season. Also listed in the table are the odds from February (right before spring training) and December 2006 (the first listing of the odds after the World Series), to give you an idea how the teams are tracking.

So here they are, the odds of the various teams to win the World Series.

The Marlins are dropping like a rock. Quick, hurry, start the season before we are arm wrestling the Nats for the cellar.

I suspect that the injuries to the pitchers and the bats sleeping through spring training had something to do with the fall from grace.

Marlins aside, some of the other teams made stunning moves.

How are the Fish looking in the race for the National League Pennant?

Let's get one more check on what the oddsmakers think of the NL East.

The Odds to win the National League East

Team Apr. Odds Feb. Odds
New York Mets 10/11 1/3
Philadelphia Phillies 11/10 4/1
Atlanta Braves 3/1 7/1
Florida Marlins 12/1 6/1
Washington Nationals 75/1 40/1

Oh, the over/under for the total number of wins for the Marlins is 76 ½ .

The more distant the memory of seeing the Marlins play the easier they are to discount. Naturally, you could bring in spring training stats as your support for the decision to discount them. But counting on spring training stats to predict how a team will preform in a 162 game season is a fool's game.
